Single Malt by Layla Reyne

This was another great action drama from Carina Press. I’ve been enjoying several of their novels over the past few months.

I think the author has created a great set up for future novels and the romance was believable and there was good tension throughout the story between the protagonists. The case work and FBI plot was very like watching a TV drama and I did find it super entertaining. I found parts of this novel a little more angsty that I’d normally be keen on, but it was not overwhelming. I am really looking forward to reading the second book now and cannot wait to see what happens next for Aidan and Jamie. A great rainy day read and an author to watch.

Good Boy by Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy.

Before I started this new WAGs novel, which is kind of a carry on from the Him series, I re read Us. I’m rubbish at remembering characters, so this was a good refresher. Even better though, it was a re read and reminder of how much I love the characters of Jamie Canning and Ryan Wesley. Much sigh.

I was well ready for Blake and Jess when I started Good boy, which is about hockey players, nice dogs, learning to trust again and also finding your space in life. Blake (Blakey!!!!!Snort) is one of my favorite hockey players ever. Do not be fooled by the big and dumb tho, he was whip smart and hugely entertaining. Pun so intended. Jess I just plain liked. She knows she hasn’t quite found her niche and is willing to take risks to find it.

I think this book fell into two parts. The wedding, of Jamie and Wes, and build up to it and then the aftermath and moving to Toronto. The wedding. Hello teary. It was magic and such a good carry on from Us. But the strength was definitely the 2nd part for me, which I guess was surprising as I’d enjoyed the wedding so much.

Just such a good read and two authors who are on my on my autobuy list. Fantastic writing.

Bad Judgement by Sidney Bell

I absolutely loved this. The snark was strong, along with brilliant chemistry and excellent world building. I think if occasional darker moments are not your thing then this might not be for you, but I adored it. I had a few moments where Embry reminded me a little of Laurent Captive Prince, but just a smidgen though. It was totally its own book.

I really hope this author writes loads more books, and fast, because I’m lined up already for purchasing. Excellent and twisty, dark plot. Long with a slow build of tension (my favourite) and some seriously excellent sex scenes. Loved it.

5 Stars.
